DGA Chair Gov. Schweitzer Applauds Gov. Sebelius' Cabinet Appointment

WASHINGTON, Feb. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer, Chair of the Democratic Governors Association, today applauded President Obama's reported selection of former DGA Chair Gov. Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of Health and Human Services.

"Our health care system is broken, and Governor Kathleen Sebelius is an excellent choice to lead the effort to fix it," Governor Schweitzer said. "In reforming our health care system, Governor Sebelius will bring a sharp intellect, a lifelong commitment to public service and an ability to bring diverse interests to a common table - much as she did in Kansas. She will be a tireless champion of President Obama's plan, which has already done more to reform our health care system in a month than we saw in the past decade."

"Kathleen Sebelius is one of the best problem solvers I know," Schweitzer continued. "She asks hard questions, expects results and always keeps her eyes on the solution. She's been a strong leader for Kansas, and I know she will be an effective advocate of making sure that all Americans have access to quality, affordable health care."

Governor Sebelius served as Chair of the Democratic Governors Association in 2007.
